4)Sprinkle herbs of choice over the wedges and season with pepper.

5)Arrange in a baking dish, cover with foil and bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for ten more minutes or until bubbly.

5. No-Bake Energy Bites

These vegan energy bites are packed with protein, low-fat, and high in fiber. They're also sweet and spicy. If you like a little something sweet with your protein, try adding cinnamon.
